Carp fight hard, grow huge and populate almost every freshwater area in the UK, which is probably why carp fishing is the UK's most popular angling discipline.
At Total Fishing Tackle, we're the largest independent retailer of carp fishing rods and tackle and sell everything you need to catch these fascinating creatures, no matter your age, ability or budget.
Quality brands like Shimano, Daiwa and Nash have been growing steadily since the carp fishing boom took off, while newer brands like Avid Carp, Sticky Baits, Thinking Anglers, Vass Waders and Spomb have really been making waves. Korda is a leading manufacturer with terminal carp fishing tackle made specifically for anglers, by anglers.
Gone are the days of glass fibre rods; our composite carp rods are quicker, powerful and more effective. Reels from Shimano and Daiwa are popular favourites, while companies like Sonik, Wychwood and PENN produce sturdy reels that will help you land the catch of a lifetime.
All our carp tackle products are available at a variety of price points to suit every person and all skill levels. If you're carp fishing overnight, carp bivvies, shelters, umbrellas, a carp bedchair and sleep systems are guaranteed to give you the best night's sleep.
There's no need to keep staring at your float watching for the moment it slips underwater: sit back, relax and wait for your electronic bite alarms to let you know your bait's been taken.
Besides a sharp hook, bait is the most vital item in any carp angler's armoury. We stock Sticky Baits, Mainline Baits, Urban Baits, Dynamite Baits, Nash Bait and more, in a range of flavours, shapes and sizes. There are glugs, pop-ups, wafters, ground baits, pellets, boilies, and even ingredients for you to make your own.
Look no further for all your end tackle and rig needs - we have the biggest range of swivels, leaders and hook link materials online from ESP, Thinking Anglers, Fox, Korda and more. All of this fantastic carp fishing tackle is useless without a way to store it, which is why we offer carryalls, rucksacks, barrow bags, rod holders, cooking bags and bags for all your tech.
There are also carp angling barrows and trolleys with one, two or three wheels or even electric motors to save you the effort of pushing or lifting and stop your back from aching. Chub, Trakker, Prestige Engineering and Shimano have created ranges of matching luggage and transportation which fit together flawlessly like a jigsaw
Once the hard work's over and you've caught your carp, you'll need unhooking mats and cradles, weigh slings and retainers, and scales to properly care for the fish before sending them swimming away. Luckily, our carp care products and kits are second to none!
Fact: cups of tea brewed on the lake always taste better than the ones from your kitchen. From compact gas cookers to full-on camping kitchens, with our products, you'll never go hungry or thirsty while carp fishing. Ridgemonkey are revolutionising the way we eat with portable cookware including toasters and double head stoves.
Tech is changing almost all industries, and carp fishing is no exception. Deeper Sonars attach to your line, then transmit a map of the bottom of the lake back to your mobile device, demonstrating depth, water temperature and whether there are any fish present. We also have numerous leads, connectors, solar chargers and portable power packs, so you can always rely on your Deeper Fishfinder to lead the way.
